Here’s the thing: wedding photos are so much more than pretty couple portraits or a *smile for the camera* feel. Photos have the ability to transport us back to a moment. They bring back what it felt like to be in that moment. Images bring our memories to life. Photos bring our memories to LIFE.
And that is where I come in. Feeling like yourself in the images makes your memories even stronger. Not only will you be in capable, kind hands but have someone who will make you feel like Beyoncé all day and more like an old friend versus a stuffy photographer.
Worried about feeling posed like a Barbie or being forced into cheesy prompts? Not with me as your photographer. You can expect fun prompts and loving direction to ensure you feel relaxed and truly yourself in front of the camera.
Imagine having a photographer that feels like a FRIEND, not an outsider on your an intimate day! You can fully expect to find me joking with your sassy uncle during family photos or bonding with your grandma about how gosh darn beautiful you look in her wedding veil. I come in feeling like another guest, not a stuffy vendor.
From setting reminders on my Apple Watch for your timeline to ensure you’re not feeling rushed from event to event, to having screenshots of your Pinterest wedding board on my phone so all the photos are captured just as you envisioned, you will not only have someone who cares about taking good photos but is deeply invested in your wedding experience.
You’ll have access to all the resources I’ve created to zap the stress out of wedding planning. You’ll also go into your engagement session and wedding day with a great idea of what to expect and how taking photos of the two of you are gonna go. Things like how to get your groom prepared AND excited for your engagement photos, or how I work hard to keep your time of getting ready chill by sending you a Starbucks giftcard the Monday before your wedding, so you can sip on your favorite drink while your hair gets curled! Meanwhile I’ll photograph all the beautiful details, your wedding dress, and candids of you hanging with all your best friends.
Here are some of the resources my couples get access to:
The one thing I tell all the couples I work with? “You’ve never done this before, and I don’t expect you to do it all by yourself.”
After shooting 75+ weddings and planning my own in 5 months, I have an arsenal of real-life experience, tactical tips, and creative ideas to share with you about what to expect for photography + how to best prepare when it comes to planning your wedding.
Here are some ways I make myself and this knowledge accessible to you:
Just look at the reviews: it won’t be long before I’ll have you laughing like we’ve known one another forever. You can trust my extroverted, bubbly personality, dad jokes and genuine affirmation to take care of that! With a natural extrovert by your side who thrives on meeting new people, you’ll have a photographer who will rock your portraits by making you feel like the real you while also making your grandmother laugh to capture the personalities and connections of all your loved ones.
